it in front of 40 million people. [ laughter ] >> obama: four years ago we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. millions of jobs were lost the auto industry was on the brink of collapse the financial system has frozen up and because of the resilience and determination of the american people we have begun to fight our way back. we have seen 5 million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come roaring back and house has begun to rise. but we all know we still have a lot of work to do. so the question is not where we have been but where we're going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed towards the wealthy and roll back regulations, that we'll be better off. i have a different view. i think we have got to invest in education and training. i think it's important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america. that we change our tax code to make sure we're helping small businesses and companies here in the united states, that we take some of the money we're saving as we wind down tw
, and that's been brought to us by the kind of tax policies that romney now is at very kateing and that obama has kept in place by keeping those budget-busting bush tax cuts as part of our system these four years. neither one of them will talk about our incarceration rate in this country. it's a huge problem. we have 2--almost 2.4 million people behind bars and there are racist implication there is with the war on drugs, which is a completely failed policy. neither of these parties will talk about it, but it impacts millions of people. we have a half million people now in prison and jail because of drug offenses. when the war on drugs was first commenced, there were fewer than 40,000, now there are over 500,000 people behind bars. three out of four people, although blacks and whites do drugs at the same rate. the studies show that. three out of four people imprisoned on drug offenses are black people. 50%-- >> cenk: we're out of time, but i got to ask you one more question. president obama is he a liberal a centrist or in your opinion is he right wing. >> i think he's way right of center. thi
. >> it turns out 2 plus 2 is 17 after all-all. >> fox has had this problem for months, most of the year they've had this very serious problem where they have what appears to be a legitimate polling operation and time and again whether it is obama's approval rating or hitting obama up against romney, time and again consistently, they've shown obama doing well. fox has been in the corner not knowing what to do. this has gone on all year. they bury the polls and look for the silver linings but now it is incredibly embarrassing because they're telling all of the viewers, none of the polls can be trusted and -- >> stephanie: i can't blame them. >> how would you like to be the head of polling at fox news and -- >> stephanie: i have more bad news. >> telling the viewers you're a schmuck and you don't know what you're doing. >> stephanie: i can't wait for election night. it turns out everything we've been saying is -- do not believe us. >> bouquet of flowers as an apology. >> they have to. poor karl rove will be tearing his
. even if things are economically tough, we're better off than we were four years ago when we were staring into the precipice of our impending doom. second, by using facts, i tried to show their attacks on president obama's policies are simply wrong. their views about the role of government in the economy simply don't hold up under the slightest scrutiny. and third, i tried to show how our current politician and even the individual mandate for health insurance do, in fact, fit neatly into the vision of the nation as the founding fathers and our constitution. the result quite frankly was to convince not a single member of their camp. perhaps that's not surprising given the rather fractured and polarized nature of our politics but it was troubling to me. facts simply bounced off of them. in the beckian world view, fear runs rough shod over truth and absurd claims about the role of government pass off as an ideological construct. whohow do you debate that? thank goodness for the first amendment. that's my view. you'd s
there is an effort by the obama campaign to say look, you've been working on the issues for four years. you know them inside and out. you know debates. focus on trying to have a good time. enjoy yourself. both campaigns are suggesting they think that the first debate may be not so -- it may be like john mccain and barack obama four years ago. the first debate was the first letdown. a lot of wonkiness. they didn't go after each other very hard. they were a little bit nervous in feeling each other out. >> eliot: the notion they would enjoy it, i can tell you i've been through debates nothing on term with that, you don't enjoy it. there are butterflies in your stomach when you walk out there. you know the campaign potentially rests on every utterance you make. there is the his tansey -- hesitancy no matter how skilled you may be, there is a hesitancy and a fear. that's unavoidable. >> how do you deal with glenn beck who is a master of television regardless of what people may think about him. they're using a nice picture of you g
